The best way to learn about historic houses is to look at them closely, and the most fun way to look at them closely is to do a puzzle showing a wonderful historic house! So, we made a unique and interesting collection of Historic House Puzzles for you to enjoy!
Built as a Federal style mansion in 1807, it was remodeled with a glazed Italianate style piazza in 1859 and is a wonderful example of how houses can evolve over time.
The house was home to members of the Tucker family from 1858 until 2003. It is now a museum house owned by Historic New England containing the accumulated belongings of four generations of Tuckers.
Museum houses can be a valuable source of inspiration and ideas for restoring your historic house.
